INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION 

Southern Directory Company, publishers of the North Wilkesboro 
city directory, takes pleasure in presenting the 1953-54 edition to the 
general public. The work embodies all available and vital data relating 
to the civic, commercial, financial, social and industrial interests and 
activities of the municipality, and the publishers add their assurance that 
the work is complete in all its parts. 

The publishers enjoy the prestige and advantage of a complete 
organization and thorough system essential in the production of direc- 
tories and the additional advantage of having the courteous co-operation 
of citizens in furnishing information. These factors, added to the liberal 
support of patrons as shown by the advertisements displayed upon the 
printed page, were vital to the success of the publication. 

Confidence in the growth of North Wilkesboro, in its wealth, industry 
and population, as well as in the advancement of its municipal and social 
activities, will be created as sections of this directory are consulted, for 
truly, the directory is a mirror reflecting North Wilkesboro to the world. 

Your attention is invited to those names appearing in DISPLAY 
BLACK TYPE throughout the directory, as they are the responsible en- 
terprising, advertising business men who take pride in sustaining the 
city directory and who have made this publication possible. 

POPULATION 

The 1953 population of Greater North Wilkesboro is 8,617, based on 
the number of individuals found by actual canvass at each residence. 
Territory immediately adjacent, which is part of the city, as far as busi- 
ness and social life are concerned, is included in the directory. 

FIVE MAJOR DEPARTMENTS 

The several essential departments are arranged in the following 
order. 

THE MISCELLANEOUS DIRECTORY, containing valuable informa- 
tion concerning State and National Governments. 

THE NUMERICAL TELEPHONE DIRECTORY, listing telephone sub- 
scribers by telephone numbers, can be found beginning with page 25. 

THE ALPHABETICAL LIST OF NAMES contains data concerning 
each individual, firm and corporation within the city. The wife's name 
is given in parenthesis and is followed by position, place of employ- 
ment and resident address. 

THE CLASSIFIED BUSINESS DIRECTORY contains the various 



INTRODUCTION 



names of all manufacturing, mercantile and professional interests in 
alphabetical order under appropriate headings. This feature constitutes 
an invaluable and indispensable epitome of the business interests of 
the community. 

THE STREET AND AVENUE GUIDE contains a complete directory 
of streets and avenues arranged in alphabetical order; the residences and 
business houses are arranged numerically under the name of each street 
and avenue, and the names of householders, with the number of occu- 
pants, and business concerns are placed opposite the numbers. 

MUNICIPAL PUBLICITY 

The directory reflects the achievements and ambitions of the city, 
depicting in truthful terms what it has to offer as a place of residence, 
as a business location, as an industrial site and as an educational 
center. To broadcast this information over the country, the publishers 
have placed copies of this issue of the directory in Directory Libraries, 
which are maintained in all the chief cities of the country. Here they 
are readily available for free public reference and serve as perpetual 
advertisements of North Wilkesboro, for business men the country over 
realize that the city directory represents the community as it really is. 

The modern City Directory is a business institution. It occupies a 
place peculiarly its own. It is necessary to the progress and develop- 
ment of a city. The advertising in this Directory is suggestive of the 
stability and permanency of the advertisers. You like to patronize those 
concerns who are in business to stay because such business establish- 
ments stand back of the wares they sell; it is a noteworthy fact that 
concerns which advertise one year in the City Directory are there again 
next year. Directory advertising is profitable.

ADVERTISERS' SPECIAL DIRECTORY Fly X 

This Publication 
is The Product of a Member of 




— thus assuring you the ultimate service that skill and care can produce in 
the way of City Directories or other reference media and providing protection 
against fraudulent advertising schemes which operate under the name of 
Directories. 

The following "Standards of Practice," adopted at the inception of the 
Association of North American Directory Publishers in 1898, and strictly ad- 
hered to over the years, is your guarantee of satisfactory Directory Service. 

The publisher of a Directory should dedicate his best efforts to the cause 
of business uplift and social service, and to this end pledges himself: 

1. To consider, first, the interest of the user of the book. 

2. To subscribe to and work for truth, honesty and accuracy in all de- 
partments. 

3. To avoid confusing duplication of listings, endeavoring to classify 
every concern under the one heading that best describes it, and to treat 
additional listings as advertising, to be charged for at regular rates. 

4. To increase public knowledge of what Directories contain; to study 
public needs and make Directories to supply them; to revise and standardize 
methods and classifications, so that what is wanted may be most easily foimd, 
and the Directory be made to serve its fullest use as a busmess and social 
reference book and director of buyer and seller. 

5. To decline any advertisement which has a tendency to mislead or 
which does not conform to business integrity. 

6. To solicit subscriptions and advertising solely upon the merits of the 
publications. 

7. To avoid misrepresentation by statement or inference regarding cir- 
culation, placing the test of reference publicity upon its accessibility to seek- 
ers ,rather than on the number of copies sold. 

8. To co-operate with approved organizations and individuals engaged 
in creative advertising work. 

9. To avoid unfair competition. 

10. To determine what is the highest and largest function of Directories 
in public service, and then to strive in every legitimate way to promote that 
fimction. 

$100 Reward will be paid by the Association of North American Directory 
Publishers for the arrest and conviction of any person or persons engaged in 
th« publishing, collectingr or canvassing for any fraudulent or fake directories.

The importance of keeping firm and product names in the 
public eye is recognized by all businessmen. It is astonishing 
to see how a firm or product, however meritorious, will slip 
into the limbo of the forgotten if not persistently advertised. 



The City Directory is the natural medium for Iceeping a 
business or product name in the spotlight, insist on being 
well represented in its pages.

ADVERTISERS' SPECIAL DIRECTORY Fly Z 



THE CITY 
DIRECTORY 



places the city on the map and is its only 
representative to the world beyond our own 
gates. 

It is the city's catalogue of business and 
represents the city, its citizens and institutions 
in every corner of these United States. 

It is the logical means of publicity in adver- 
tising the city, its manufacturing industries, 
its advantages and resources. 

The men who direct the affairs of progressive 
and up-to-date business institutions recognize 
the fact that the City Directory tells the story 
of the city's life and keeps it before the public 
as no other publication can or does. 

Its Classified Business Section furnishes a 
list of all trades, professions and pursuits, 
constituting a special trade directory or buy- 
ers* guide and is the best advertising medium 
on earth.
